Cryptosporidium & Giardia filtration in 2 minutes


Filta-Max®
World leader for the capture and recovery of Cryptosporidium and Giardia


The unique capture and recovery technology of the Filta-Max® system
has made it the number one Cryptosporidium and Giardia analysis technique in the world.
Filta-Max consistently recovers high numbers of target organisms.
U.S. EPA Method 1623 and UK DWI-approved.
Large volumes of finished water or raw water can be sampled with one filter, providing high sensitivity.
 


Proven Technology
The Filta-Max system has been specifically designed
to optimize both the capture and recovery of Cryptosporidium and Giardia.
The filter is made of open-cell foam discs that have been compressed
to give a nominal porosity for the capture of Cryptosporidium and Giardia.
After sampling, the foam is decompressed, enabling the captured organisms
to be recovered by a simple washing and concentration procedure.

   
Superior Performance
Consistently recovers high numbers of target organisms.
High volumes of both finished water (up to and above 1000 liters)
and raw water (up to 50 liters) can be filtered to provide greater sensitivity.
Samples can be concentrated to 25mL without centrifugation.
The filter operates at sampling flow rates of up to 4 liters per minute.

   
Respected
U.S. EPA Method 1623 and UK DWI-approved.
More Cryptosporidium and Giardia tests are done worldwide
using the Filta-Max system than all other filtration technologies combined.
